“Amazing!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

Stayed here overnight in their Tipi option. The Tipi was clean and inviting. We were provided with enough blankets and sleeping bags to be plenty warm and even had a chair and stool set that we took out to see the stars at night. The staff was all extremely friendly and helpful and truly made the experience great. We even got to have a bonfire with other campers and had a blast! I highly recommend!

I think this is a really cool experience for anyone visiting Moab!

We stayed in their cheapest option, the tipi and had a wonderful experience. The beds inside are set up to be very warm and cozy...they offer more blankets which is nice since it was pretty cold the night we stayed there. Some reviews make it seem like it is right next to the highway but it is not. Plus there are hardly any cars driving on the highway during the day and especially at night so if you listen for it you may hear a car or two but it really did not bother us at all. Maybe it was our location but we did not hear any generators either...it was a very quiet sleep!

Next time I would upgrade to a room with a private bathroom. We thought they were too expensive but after looking at hotels in the area we realized it is just an expensive town for lodging in general. The bathrooms were very nice but in the morning there was a little wait and they were not as clean as the night before so for us we would upgrade but it is still a very pleasant experience if you do use the public restrooms. I wish it were closer to town so you could walk to all the cute shops and restaurants but it is a quick drive and we ended up enjoying being a little removed from town.

The staff was very friendly and had great tips on what to do during our visit. The only downfall while we were there was the wind and it is something they could obviously not control at all. It was an extremely windy night when we stayed which if you can avoid, I would. On the plus side I can say the tipis can handle wind like a champ! The winds were SO intense and we felt very safe in our tipi.

From reading other reviews and talking to other people while we were there I would say make sure you go there with an open mind and do not compare it to a hotel...because it obviously is not. It is such fun experience and in my opinion way better than a hotel!

This brand new "hotel" (only 2 1/2 weeks old) has all their rooms set up as wall tents with furniture, private toilets and showers and a wood burning stove in each. There are also, for the budget conscious, tipis which have access to 2 trucks on the property with porta-johns and showers. Our tent smelled wonderful because of the new wooden platform the tent was set on. And it was tastefully furnished with a king size bed in one alcove and a pullout couch in another. We stayed this past weekend - our group rented 5 tents. Mine was the deluxe suite - well worth the extra money. The young adults managing the place are congenial, friendly and very helpful. I would recommend this experience. The only downside was the weather - cold, rainy and windy. But, that can't be helped. Also, I could hear the traffic from the road - but this was Moab's biggest weekend because of the car show. Sunday night, when everyone had left was very quiet.

Room Tip: Choose a deluxe tent or a deluxe tent suite. They seem to be in an area by themselves, quieter than...

We went to Moab to enjoy nature, so "glamping" (glamorous camping) was the perfect match to our desires for the weekend. We really enjoyed the luxury (at least compared to our own tent). The staff was incredible and we enjoyed their excellent service. On our second night we got close to our 35mph wind limit (measured at 30mph), but we felt safe and enjoyed the experience of wind and rain and sunshine (all in 2 days!) We'd definitely go again!

Room Tip: Tipis have cots - but the tents all have "real" beds.

We upgraded to a tent with a bathroom for the 4 of us. The kids loved this. The tent was well prepared with wood stove - 1 large queen bed (comfortable) and 2 cots for the kids. The tent was on a wooden platform facing the valley with chairs. The night was easy with the wood stove fired up that kept us cozy all night. The sight is hard to find, semi-paved road. Worth the effort and just as pricey as other Moab areas.

Room Tip: Upgrade to a bathroom in tent with a valley view. Worth it.

Everything at Moab Under Canvas was fabulous.......clean, comfy bed, and we chose a tent with a flushing toilet, hot running water/sink; and shower! That was the best!! My husband and I were extremely happy with everything. Only one negative - I could hear the road noise (camping site was somewhat close to the main road leading into Moab) but that didn't disturb my sleep and during the day the noise wasn't as noticeable. It's pricey but worth it for the experience!
Very Impressive!

Thank you for your kind words and I'm glad you had a wonderful time! We strive to provide a unique and memorable experience for all our guests!

We searched long and hard for a location in the Moab area that provides priceless vistas of all the beauty and splendor of the region. Being located along the 191 corridor does present a bit of background ambiance!

I hope to see you back soon, we will have Deluxe 9 ready and waiting for you!

Take care,

The first thing to note about this property is that it is camping--not a hotel. The idea is interesting (and has apparently worked in Yellowstone), but the execution was a bit lacking. There are 3 types of tents--tipi, safari and deluxe, which range in price from about $100 to more than $300 per night. I wouldn't recommend a tipi, which is exactly that: a plain tipi with a couple of cots. We stayed in a safari (a large canvas tent) with a king bed and cots for kids. The bed was very comfortable and the wooden furnishings nice. Although they supply a lantern, the campsite was very basic, had no amenities or electricity, the showers and bathrooms (housed in a mobile trailer) were stinky, and the property was 10 miles outside town and adjacent to the noisiest and busiest highway in the area. At the end of the day, while the experience in a canvas tent was unique, this is simply a lot of money to pay for camping. $300 per night goes a very long way in Moab.

Room Tip: Get a safari tent or deluxe.

Thank you Joshua for your review of Moab Under Canvas. We are certainly excited that you are one of the thousands to experience us during our Grand Opening and first few weeks of operation.

I wish to take this opportunity to agree with you in that we are not a Hotel Format as many expect us to be. The only similarity is that we have a full time Team Dedicated to exceptional Service to our Guests with Full 24 hour Maintenance and Front desk.

Our TiPi are actually less than 100.00 and start at 79.00 This gives us and our guests a cost effective alternative in our Camping format if they do not wish to spend on a Safari Deluxe or Suite. Each style offers a different Budget format to fit all types of camping guests.

You are right again in that the campsite is " Very Basic" That is our intent so that we do not follow the traditional Hotels Format. We want our Guests to be "unplugged" to enjoy the nature and beauty that abounds in our Campsite and the Moab Area. We are still just that.. Camping. We offerr a modified alternative with adding a few comforts of home like furniture and private bathrooms but still keep that camping feel of enjoying our natural environment. Thus why the TiPi is a great option if you truely wish to "rough it"

We structured the site to be further from town so that the guests experience all Moab has to offer... Like, the Arches and the Beatiful Majestic Rock Mountain Range that is the very Back yard of our Campsite. You can not see this from in town.

Hwy 191 runs through the entire area from North and South including right through the middle of the City of Moab where all the Hotels in the area experience the availability of the Hwy. However, we are located on property over 30 acres away from the Hwy and 10 Miles out of town.

I want to thank you again for your review and taking the time to talk about Moab Under Canvas. It is and will continue to be our Goal to offer exceptional service and a lifetime experience when staying with us. We hope to see you again if not in Moab than one of our other Amazing Sites in Yellowstone or Glacier. Thank you for becoming our Friends and Family!

Kind Regards
